Thanks to Robert & Laqueta Soule and the Tennessee Valley Region of the Walter P. Chrysler Club for hosting the 2006 Chattanooga Chrysler & Imperial Meet in Chattanooga, Tennessee!  Everyone had a great time!

Be sure to also visit Robert's page for the 2006 Chattanooga Chrysler & Imperial Meet for more pictures and video.  The meet was so much fun we had to have TWO pages for it!


Cars and folks started arriving on Friday, with a good assembly ready for the caravan to the local Sonic Drive-In for dinner.


Departing the Soule's at noon on Saturday, we caravanned to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum for lunch.   After lunch, we toured the Railroad Museum and took a ride on the Missionary Ridge Local.  A ride on a vintage steam train was a perfect tie-in to a weekend of fine vintage cars.

Sunday and Monday allowed participants at this events to enjoy more great cars!
